Late in the evening the twilight still dominates the sky in this mid-spring view from Sweden. The big dipper is visible at the upper right and bright star Arcturus in the middle. Down on the Earth is a recently excavated grave, revealing a Viking child buried about 1000 years ago. As added by the photographer "This is the earliest known christian graveyard in Sweden. Parts of the coffin is visible to the left of the head." P-M Heden/
